Fans were introduced to the MCU's new hero last March with Oscar Isaac's arrival as Moon Knight. Along with Egyptian gods and goddesses, the Disney+ show also centered on mental health traumas and disabilities, a concept that was never extensively explored before by Marvel Studios.
Although the show concluded with an amazing cliffhanger following the long-awaited Jake Lockley persona’s appearance, a second season wasn't still announced.
In an interview with The Playlist, Moon Knight head writer Jeremy Slater sadly admitted uncertainty about the show's second season.
"I honestly have no idea. I haven't had any conversations with Marvel," Slater said. 'I think a lot of those decisions are ultimately going to be in the hands of Kevin Feige because he's the guy with the master plan." And of course, Oscar Isaac, because he's not signed up for the sort of traditional seven-film contract or whatever other actors have signed. Oscar has the ability to do as much or as little Moon Knight as he wants to. I think he had a great time playing the character, and I think he really enjoyed the process and is happy he did it. But I also think he's not a guy who's going to rush in and just sort of churn out a sequel just because the first one was popular."
According to Slater, the decision is still up to Isaac whether he is interested to return for another season. "Again, I don't want to speak for him and put words in his mouth, but my guess is he's going to want to make sure that there's an actual story worth telling and that he gets to go to places that he didn't get to go in this first one and challenge himself in new ways," the writer added. "My hope and dream is that we see him again in some form in the MCU, but I have no idea when that will be or what form it will take. I'm in the dark like everyone else."
For now, it's still too early to assume a second season for Isaac's titular hero. Despite Slater's statement, the possibility of Moon Knight Season 2 can still happen due to the fan demands and the streaming performance of the show.
According to a source, Moon Knight earned a total of 3.7 billion minutes viewership on its sixth episode run, an impressive record that breaks Hawkeye's streaming record. With that said, fans are absolutely engrossed to know what would happen next to Steven, Marc, and Jake Lockley's adventure. More importantly, it certainly wouldn't hurt for Marvel Studios to develop another season, as long as the fans continues to demand.
Moon Knight is available to stream on Disney+.
